Cinnamon Oatmeal Waffles
Cinnamon Oatmeal waffles are a go to favorite in our home. I often use oatmeal to make a simple oat flour for waffles, pancakes ,baked goods... even pizza dough. Here is is only swapped for a portion of the flour, but doing so is a great way to add both moisture and soluble fiber to the waffles. Cinnamon is a classic addition to foods such as these oatmeal waffles and has metobolic benefits as well... so feel free to sprinkle a bit more on.
Heart Shaped Waffle Maker
My little girl has a new weapon in her culinary demands arsenal. The Waffle Maker. Little Foodie is mostly non-verbal still, despite extensive therapy and great strides in other areas. She uses a combination of pictures, associated items and pointing to request what she wants. Well, I have been getting the waffle image card quite a bit over the past few weeks. She is rather pleased with this new piece of equipment, to say the least.
The new Chef's Choice heart shaped waffle maker. It is a small but heavy duty unit, that is very easy to use & perfect for fussy foodies like my daughter and I. It has a button to select "deep bake" for more uniform texture or "crisp exterior" for quicker waffles with crispier outsides and softer inside. There is also a numbered dial to select how browned you want your waffles to be. Other than adjusting the setting to your liking and plugging it in, there is little left for you to do other than wait til it tells you it is ready to bake, add a ¼ cup of batter, close the lid and wait til it tells you the waffle is done. Easy as pie (or waffles in this case).
I picked this small heart shaped waffle maker, since there are only two of us in the house and the waffles can be broken up into little heart shaped wafer cookies too. It is a fun addition to my kitchen equipment, but now that I am aware of my daughters voracious appetite for fresh waffles, I'll probably be looking into adding a deeper Belgian waffle maker to my equipment closet soon as well.
In the meantime, I've already made several types of waffles in our little heart waffle maker. Here is the simple Cinnamon Oatmeal Waffle recipe that she and I both enjoyed. I started off with a recipe from an early 1960's version of the McCall's Cookbook, as a rough template for the flour, liquid & leavener ratios, and free-wheeled it from there.

Cinnamon Oatmeal Waffles Recipe
- ⅔ cup flour
- ½ cup old fashioned oats
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 2 tbs melted butter or oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Turn your waffle maker on to preheat. (I used crisp through setting on medium darkness, since my daughter loves both crunchy and chewy textures)
- Put dry ingredients in food processor and pulse until oats are ground.
- Whisk together wet ingredients in batter bowl, then add the dry mix and stir until smooth.
- Scoop out appropriate amount of the oatmeal waffle batter for your maker and pour onto plate (mine takes ¼ cup). Bake as directed by your equipment.
- Remove to plate lined with a kitchen towel or paper towels, so you won't end out with soggy waffles on the bottom.
- Serve with syrup, butter or plain (like my daughter prefers).

What a neat waffle maker. If waffles weren't fun enough than this definitely does the trick.
Jenn @The Rebel Chick says
I have a waffle maker but it is nowhere near that cool!
Just gave your recipe a try. Yummy!
I made this recipe today for breakfast. Small batch and really tasty!
these are very good, but using a regular sized waffle maker, it only makes 2 4-waffle rounds. My husband declared them the best waffles I'd ever made, but my daughter and I prefer our Yogurt ones instead.

I'm glad your hubbs liked them, and thanks for the feedback about the waffle count in your maker. I'm sure it will be helpful to other readers in the future.
I just made these for my 8 year old and 18 month old, and they loved them! These are delicious and I will be making them often 🙂 thanks!!

We made a vegan version!
They turned out delicious!
We substituted the buttermilk with vanilla almond milk+apple cider vinagar (1 cup almond milk+1 tbsp of acv); and instead of the eggs, we used applesauce (1/4 cup applesauce=1 egg). Also, used have whole wheat flour/half white flour.
Will definitely be our go to waffle reciepe!

These waffles were delicious and easy! I added dark cherries (chopped) and subbed in gluten free flour for the all purpose flour. Definitely a keeper recipe.
